Continuing our new weekly feature on Wednesdays, we have our next Member Spotlight! Today I’d like you to get to know…
Member Spotlight: Christina Ronstadt!
My first workout at CFHV was amazing. I went back and forth about coming and then just went for it. Started on a Tuesday in October 2016, Jose was coaching. I was so impressed how nice and welcoming everyone was. I had no idea what I was doing but kept reminding myself, everybody was once new to CrossFit and I’ll get there.
After turning 45 the weight was just piling on, and my confidence was at an all-time low. I didn’t feel like me. I felt weak and just huge. I want to feel strong and powerful, especially as I get older.
My most memorable moment was spending my 46th birthday at CFHV for the Open. What an amazing experience. I remember thinking, Now THIS is how you celebrate turning 46!
I’m the Director of Marketing for NCM. We are an in theater advertising company.
It’s going to be the reoccurring theme, but the confidence I’ve gained from getting fit has poured into all areas of my life. By participating in CrossFit I am doing things I never thought I could do. I take this feeling of accomplishment into my life at work and at home. I love being an example to my kids. If mom can do it, so can you!
It’s all about the confidence for me. When I was heavier, feeling out of shape and weak I just wanted to hide and be invisible. Now that I’ve lost 25lbs, and am down 2 sizes I feel so confident and happy. I still have work to do, but I’ve completely changed how I interact in the world.
CrossFit has made my Yoga practice so much stronger, plus lifting and carrying anything from groceries to cat litter, cases of water, you name it. I use my CrossFit gainz every damn day.
OMG so many. I honestly can’t pick just one. Everyone I’ve met has inspired me.
A pull-up!!!! I’m so close. LOL
Favorite – deadlift Least Fav – burpees (they are just evil)
In N Out Burger. So bad, but oh so good.
